While browsing I found that 2006 Buick Lucerne CXL posted the identical time and trap speed as my car. The Buick has 197 hp @ 5200 rpm. Does that mean I have around the same hp ?

Makes me wonder how much time the automatic would make with a shorter rear-screw. Probably get closer to 100mph.

It better be faster than a stock w123 300d. I wouldn't even compare my car to it (0-60 in less than 9 seconds). My main point is that my car with maxed out IP shouldn't be more than 150 hp. Based on onlineconversions I'm at about 190 hp. So about 40 hp extra from lpg. I guess with an intercooler and water injection (without alcohol to complicate things up) I might hit the magical 200 hp. Also adding a VNT would spice things up down the rev range.

But for a price of intercooler+wi+vnt I can get installed a m103 or cis-e m104 and and have a cheaper to run car.

I don't know which path to get.

Here in Albania the 2.5 turbo is not prefered as people want as smaller and economical engine as they can.

What do you recon is the 0-60 time of a 190 with a m103?

The 190E 2.6 was sold here, brochure claims 0-55mph at 7.2sec with the 5-speed and 7.6sec with the automatic (both with 3.27:1 rear screw).

I was actually thinking of the big brother 3.0l m103. What was the 2.6 l 0-60 and 1/4 mile time? 0-55 in 7.2s looks plenty fast, even faster than the 2.3 16v.

I used to have a w124 2.6l and I loved that car. Impressive car.
